MICRO, a manufacturer specialising in precision medical components, sub-assemblies and complete devices for laparoscopic surgical procedures, headquartered in Somerset, New Jersey, USA, celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. The company is a full-service contract manufacturer of precision medical devices which offers Metal Injection Moulding and Ceramic Injection Moulding.

Originally called Micro Stamping Corporation, MICRO was founded in 1945 in Maplewood, New Jersey, with a focus on manufacturing high-precision metal stampings. It is now a leading global provider of medical device contract manufacturing services, and its operations have expanded from 2,600 m2 to nearly 16,700 m2, increasing manufacturing capacity to meet market needs. 

The company employs over 450 people and has annual sales revenue of over $100 million. MICRO also recently dedicated an expanded research and development centre to showcase its product development capabilities.

MICRO’s medical device division began developing ligation clips for use in surgical procedures and currently produces over a million endoscopic instruments annually in its environmentally controlled Class 8 cleanroom. The company states that its Design for Manufacturability expertise allows MICRO to help customers design products optimised for production, keeping costs manageable and maximising return on investment. 

“We are incredibly proud to celebrate seventy-five years providing engineering and technical expertise, fulfilling our vision to help our customers save lives,” stated Brian Semcer, President, MICRO. “As a trusted and valued product development partner to our clients, innovation has always been the hallmark of our business and we continually seek ways to improve and reinvest in technology, equipment, state-of-the-art facilities and training to create new and better solutions for customers and their patients.”

Frank J Semcer Jr, Director of Human Resources, MICRO, explained, “At the heart of our company’s growth and success are our employees, who we consider family. We’re deeply committed to their development, which reflects our core values.”

He continued, “We routinely invest in our employees through competitive compensation, benefits and on-the-job training, while our culture allows us to attract and retain top talent. With continued success, MICRO provides opportunities and career growth to graduates of top engineering programs as well as high school graduates who elect not to pursue a college degree but want to learn a trade.”
